Editorial Reviews

It is fair to say that Lambert, Hendricks and Ross set standards in style and musical ability. The trio's contribution to Jazz vocal cannot be underestimated and their vocal gymnastics dramatically changed the sound of other vocal groups. They were voted best vocal group in downbeats readers poll 5 years in a row. Two complete albums on one CD. The first features rhythm section based on Count Basie's 'New Testament' band with the vocalese practitioners Dave Lambert, John Hendricks and Annie Ross executing the tricky lead and section work. Annie Ross is astonishing as she hits impossibly high trumpet parts with aplomb. Then on the second you have the thrilling, ultra swinging sound of the full Count Basie Orchestra plus appearances from Joe Williams. In fact there's enough words and music here to make it seem like some sort of crazy Jazz opera. Also included are bonus live tracks "Doodlin'" and "Everyday I Have The Blues" recorded with Count Basie.

This release from the British label Jasmine is a mixed bag, consisting of two LHR 1950s releases and two live tracks from a jazz festival, twenty two tracks in all.

Tracks 1-10 are "Sing A Song Of Basie," in Mono. Mono isn't the best way to hear complex music. A lot of overdubs were applied so the vocals sound diffuse. There's too much echo, and the instruments have no kick.

Tracks 11-20 are "Sing Along With Basie," in Stereo, a much better presentation.

The two jazz festival tracks sound fine for the vintage.

"Sing A Song Of Basie" is a historical document, but "Sing Along With Basie" is far more enjoyable. If you want only one LHR release, the 2-CD set "The Hottest New Group In Jazz" is preferable.

I met Hendricks at the lady day play, so, I bought this cd, but it wasn't music to my ears. I could not appreciate it, although, he is a genius.
